'm a big supporter of george w. bush. he would be surprised to see that since i campaigned for john kerry. it is a couple of republican operatives in atlanta who are sending misleading fliers to democrats in maine, trying to get into vote for cynthia. it is ridiculous. only residents of the place you are running should contribute. if you're running for senate in maine, only people in maine could contribute. >> democracy have representation. that led to the birth of our country. it was not about corporations. it is not about karl rove. it was about representation. one of our most special freedoms. terrible decisions, a super pacs bad. people talk about big government being bad. my experience is the political industrial complex that is just as insidious both here in maine and nationally. i do think we need to get back to the principle that when people want to run for office they should be able to have a straight dialogue with the electorate. they should be able to say who's a lot for me. people should not come in from atlanta saying do not vote for angus king or cynthia. that should not be

, that is to protect beach erosion and to maintain the -- the safety of the beach area. and john is showing you some examples of that. but look how twisted this is. this is from wind and wave damage. to give you a good idea of how strong this storm was, as it pounded this rehoboth beach. the good thing is that many people had been evacuated and looking down this way, towards the boardwalk, you can see that the lights are still on, gregg. that's a very important thing. that means the crews have been working throughout the night to help this area stay well lit and to stay covered, in terms of the darkness to make sure there is light here along the pathway of the boardwalk. the boardwalk received very little damage, by the way. we will walk over here and show you how secure it is, except for this hole here. i want to make sure that john watches out for that. that's beach erosion. watch your step there. but the boardwalk here, as you can see, it's solid. it's intact. now, further down, there is some flooding. we can't get to that flooding right now. we will be able to get to it throughout the day when t

population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
back the house. >> so did republican house speaker john boehner. >> i continue to feel confident about house republicans' chances of holding on to our majority. >> republicans have 242 seats to the democrats' 193. so democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to win the majority. analysts say that's not likely to happen. >> the republicans will control the house again after november, so they'll probably suffer very minimal losses if they suffer losses at all. >> for republicans, obama care is still front and center. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
